Sydney-based melodic metal core band FOR ALL ETERNITY brought their signature beauty-laced brutality to Facedown Records with their label debut Metanoia. After two self-released projects, FAE released Metanoia in 2015, and the album’s blend of classic hardcore vocals with hints of polished singing over impressive musicianship catapulted the band to the top of the Australian independent scene. Building on that momentum they travelled stateside to play Facedown Fest where they debuted their supreme live show to a sold out crowd.
FAE’s sophomore label release The Will To Rebuild showcases carefully layered production by the band’s guitarist Nick Page, with mixing and mastering by Josh Shroeder. The Will To Rebuild is an anthology of the stages of grief; undeniably empowering, shamelessly sorrowful, gut wrenching, grim. At the heart of The Will To Rebuild is the struggle to claw our way back to life when life seems too difficult to live. Deeply personal lyrics cut to the bone and intertwine with melody and technical ferocity to create a devastating heaviness.
The eagerly anticipated sophomore album from For All Eternity: The Will To Rebuild drops December 15.

Iconic dream-pop/post-punk outfit THE CHAMELEONS (UK) have announced their First Ever Australian headline dates. Fronted by founding member, vocalist and bassist Mark Burgess, the tour will showcase the band’s genre-defining body of work, instigated with their 1983 debut Script of the Bridge.
“There will only ever be one band like The Chameleons, because for those of us who love the Chameleons it is not just a simple fancy, it is a religion” – Louder Than War
Script Of The Bridgefeatured key singles “Up The Down Escalator” and “Second Skin”, with follow up releases containing gems such as “Perfume Garden” and ‘’The Fan And The Bellows”, star performer from 1985’s “What Does Anything Mean? Basically”, “Swamp Thing”, found on 1986’s Strange Times, and many more.
For close to 20 years, THE CHAMELEONS would maintain an almost unattainable standard for all those who followed in their footsteps. The group’s influence would go on to penetrate the highest levels of the music industry, with LIAM GALLAGHER famously recanting their lyrics “Is It Any Wonder?” as he accepted a Brit award. THE VERVE would also go on to name check the band as one of their main influences.
To see just how far their unique brand of melancholy rock spread, you needn’t look any further than INTERPOL and THE EDITORS
“What became the archetypal post-punk sound didn’t exist at the time. Indeed its questionable that without The Chameleons it ever would have done” – Drowned In Sound
Live performances from THE CHAMELEONS are a rare treat, even rarer down under where they have never been… miss THE CHAMELEONS at your own peril!
